Lagos police command arrests three pickpockets while trying to rob a policeman

The Lagos State police command has arrested a 28-year-old suspected pickpocket, Ndubuisi Nsuka, and two other members of his gang while attempting to steal from a policeman.

The Imo State indigene and his accomplices – Saheed Shittu and Usman Abubakar – belonged to a syndicate, which specialised in using a tricycle to dispossess commuters of their valuables.

According to Punchng, while Abubakar rode the tricycle, Nsuka and Shittu allegedly pretended to be passengers and stole from their victims. Luck ran out on them on Tuesday when they attempted to rob a policeman.

The officer, who was going to the office on Tuesday, boarded their tricycle. He was about to enter the tricycle when some people cautioned him. They told him that the men were notorious for stealing from passengers.

He, however, boarded the tricycle. When they wanted to steal from him, he did not struggle with them and he did not reveal his identity because he was in mufti. When the tricycle approached the Zone 2 command headquarters, he asked some officers at the command to arrest them.

During interrogation, they initially pretended that they did not know each other. The officers, however, dialled the number of one of them on the other person’s phone and it brought out his accomplice name.

Abia man butchers his wife then commits suicide by setting himself ablaze

A man committed suicide yesterday in Abia State by setting himself on fire after butchering his wife.

The man, identified only as Ejike, had a misunderstanding with his wife so he used a machete to hack her in Ezere, in the Isiukwuato local government area of Abia state.

Locals helped rescue Ejike’s wife during the attack and they rushed her to the hospital where her condition is really critical.

Meanwhile, Ejike, fearing that his wife may not survive the attack, went into his car where there was a container of fuel, poured it on himself after a moment of sitting there deep in thought, and set himself on fire with a match.

Efforts by passersby to douse the flames and rescue him were unsuccessful.
